Lockington Consolidated School student Col Pearse will represent Victoria at the School Sport Australia Swimming Championships for the second year in a row.

The 10-year-old will compete in six individual events in the multi-class 10 to 12 year category after winning three silver medals at the state championships in May.

The North West Athletics and Geelong Swimming Club member competes in the S10 class, which is for those with amputations in the bottom half of their limbs.

Nathalia’s Caitlin Hawks achieved some outstanding results on the athletics track during the competitive 2013/14 season which has earned her June’s senior nomination.

The 18-year-old hurdler won a silver medal at the Australian Junior Championships in Sydney (running a personal best time) while a silver was also achieved at the Australian All Schools Championships in Townsville.

Hawks amassed 11 medals at state and national level and is considered the second fastest under 20 400m hurdler in Australia.
